With winter right around the corner, it’s already time to start thinking about shopping for the holiday season. Making a list and shopping for holiday gifts is a fun and relaxing way to spread cheer!

For all our beauty lovers out there, here are the best beauty gifts for any price range to look out for this winter season. Stock up for those stockings!

Best Beauty Gifts $20 and Under

Gifts under $20 are perfect for showing appreciation to a friend without breaking the bank. If you have a large group of friends, this is the way to go since you can buy for more people while keeping the holidays budget-friendly.

If you’ve been on Tiktok in the past year, you’ve certainly seen the evolution of the soap brows trend.

Dubbed “The Original Brow Soap,” this kit is a fabulous gift for someone who’s been wanting to dive into the trend and re-do their brow look. Stay trendy with gifts this year!

Whether you’re looking for a thoughtful and personal gift or you just love astrology, these soaps are such a cute way to rep your sign.

Each sign has a different scene and different look, so the gift is sure to be unique. I love the gorgeous colors – I’ll be putting this on my list!

For anyone still looking for their signature scent, look no further than this mini rollerball perfume from Good Chemistry.

Beside the raving reviews I’ve heard about this scene, the packaging is adorable and the size is perfect for anyone experimenting with their signature scent!

Best Beauty Gifts $25-50

A great mid-range gift cannot be overestimated! Whether it’s for yourself or for a friend, spending a little extra but not breaking the bank is a nice gesture to show you care and give a thoughtful gift.

Herbivore De-Puff + Glow Mini Jade Roller Trio

I love Herbivore’s skincare products, so this set is a perfect introduction.

Jade rollers are an essential for any beauty guru, so give the gift of a well made jade roller along with serums to massage in with it. A great introduction set for any jade roller-less friend!

Light in the Box Acrylic Nail Art Kit

Since a lot of nail salons have shut down due to COVID, us manicure loving gals have been seriously deprived of our gorgeous nails!

If you have a little extra time on your hands, learning to DIY acrylic nail art is a fun activity and a huge money saver from those nail salon trips. This kit is the perfect way to get started.

The e.l.ftastic 12 Day Advent Calendar

Give the gift of 12 days of excitement with e.l.f.’s 12-day kit of the brand’s classic favorites.

From makeup tools to small palettes, you’ll look forward to starting each day with a new small present. This is such a creative gift idea and a great solution for the makeup lover that you just can’t shop for!

Glossier Terrazzo Hoodie

Everyone’s been freaking out since Timothée Chalamet was spotted rocking Glossier’s classic pink hoodie.

For a gift that’s so 2020, grab a Glossier hoodie for a pop-culture and beauty loving friend! I love this Terrazzo hoodie because it’s Glossier’s signature look, but you’ll stand out among a sea of basic pink hoodies with this fun heathered color.

Best Beauty Gifts $50-100

Perfect for a BFF or a family member, a higher end gift can be a great beauty introduction or a wonderful surprise for a makeup loving friend. Or, it’ll be a great addition to your own holiday wishlist!

Drunk Elephant The Littles Set

As someone who’s been wanting to get more involved in skincare, this set would be AMAZING!

I’ve heard amazing reviews about Drunk Elephant products for a range of skin types. Since this kit has small portions of many different products, it’s the perfect sampler to figure out what works for you without breaking the bank on many different products.

Lush 12 Days of Christmas Gift Set

My absolute favorite part of the holidays is seeing what fun sets and seasonal products Lush comes out with each year.

This holiday gift set has soaps, scrubs, balms, and bath bombs that make up the ultimate soothing night-in gift set. No matter what holiday you celebrate, this set is a winner for the wishlist!

Morphe MUA Life Brush Collection

This set is another great gift for a seasoned beauty lover or someone who’s just getting into the makeup scene.

The wide range of brushes in this collection are a helpful addition to any beauty-guru’s makeup kit, or they can stand alone for someone without many brushes to work with. Either way, the great quality and wide selection make for a worthwhile investment.

Philosophy Large Amazing Grace Set
